To begin, you will need a few simple materials:
- A set of graphite pencils containing a range of grades
- Erasers: A kneaded-rubber one and a plastic / vinyl one
- Pencil sharpener
- Pad of quality drawing paper 11 x 14”
- Sketchbook. A 9 x 12” wire-bound one is best, because it can flip open and lie flat
As the course develops, we will explore drawing with a range of different materials and I will let you know in advance of each class what these may be.
